Dream Time: What cars would you like to see modeled?

Recommended Posts

Ok I know it's not an original topic but I'm curious. What would you all like to see modeled? Cars, trucks and SUVS. Race cars too. I think it would be cool to see how this breaks down based on age and influences in life. Anyway here's what I'd like to see:

2000-2005 Monte Carlo; Nice looking car and looks sharp on some 19's

Prices on real ones are starting to come down and I think more and more will be fixed up as the years go by.

Nissan Titan Extended and Crew Cab, 4x4 and 4x2. Lifted or slammed, I just love them. I'll have one one day but got to get my current car paid off. speaking of which,

2006 Impala SS. Got to keep the Hemi Charger and the 300C honest :D

Chevy Colorado or GMC Canyon. These are starting to pick up steam with the mini truck crowds and as far as I'm concerned you can never have enough mini trucks.

Newer Top Fuel, Pro Stock and Funny Car kits.

87-93 Mustang LX, or 85-86 Mustang Gt

That's my list right now, and I know we'll never see them as kits I would like to see what everyone else is looking for.

My wife would like to see my 250+ unbuilt kits get built someday, as would I!

I think given what the Model King is doing, coupled with some offerings from Resin casters and the fact that RC2 and Revell keep churning out kits, I can't "dream" up more new kits at this time.

There are some kits from the '70's that I would like to see re-issued and am hopeful that I will.

I would be more then happy with a 1970 El Camino. The same tooling could be used to make a 1970 Wagon as well. I'd even take it if it was modified off a Chevelle! (though it would be incorrect, I'd rather have that version then none at all!)

I'd like to see a kit of the current NASCAR Dodge Charger. I know 2 resins are already available, and a third is on the way, but I have limited Intrepids and I want to build them AS Intrepids! Plus, each resin body is at the least $25, plus another $20 for kit and decals, then I don't have as many Intrepids.

One kit would take care of that, I could then do as many Charger NASCAR versions as I want, which is about 30, as I love the NASCAR Charger!

More pickups, especially Dodges!

Anything else is fine with me. I like most American subjects and I have enough kits that I really don't need to buy any more...

You took the words out of my mouth. . . :shock:

I won one of those some time ago on Ebay. It isn't in the best shape it could be, but if they're released again, I'll buy at least 6. . .

Also, 87-94 chevy Astro van, 86-93 Mazda b series pick up, 78-82 toyota Starlet, mid 80's Suzuki SA-310(3 cyl. hatchback) and Suzuki L J series jeeps. . .

That would do for now, :wink:

Mike

Yes!! Why not a model of "The Car" while we're at it?

1951 340 America Barchetta... 1964 FERRARI 250 GT BERLINETTA LUSSO...

I've never seen the 340 America before, absolutely beautiful shape! The Lusso would aslo be very welcome in kit form.

was that a trabant back there? yep i would go for one of those in tamiya quality as well esp as you say with rally/race options.

and that barchetta, is that the late joel finns car?

if so i know who rebuilt it (redid poor prior bodywork back in the late 70s) and spent many an evening using the hood as a beer holder while crawling over and under it assisting in the repairs.
